NEW YORK (AP) - Fifth Avenue in New York City came alive on Easter Sunday where costumes mingled with elegant bonnets fit for St. Patrick's Cathedral and nearby churches. The secular spectacle was a takeoff on a New York tradition from the 1800s, when the city's elite paraded their Sunday best to mark the holiday.

New York's Easter parade is now an outdoor free-for-all of participants and spectators from around the world. Weeks were spent making costumes.
